Finished The Quilting!

26 Nov

Omigosh! That appointment for my Psychiatrist was much longer than I had expected it to be, and my whole afternoon was shot! I got home around 4:00 and made some dinner. (I heated up some left over gyros.) I right away jumped on my machine and finished this beast of a quilt! I love the way it turned out, and later tonight, I will put on the binding! First, I suppose I should find a binding to put on it… To the Fabric Bins! Huzzah!
